FULL-TIME: The Seattle Sounders became the first MLS team to win the Concacaf Champions League, dispatching Pumas UNAM 3-0 in the final on Wednesday in front of a sellout crowd of 68,741. The Sounders got two goals from Raúl Ruidíaz and one goal by Nicolás Lodeiro.

SOUNDERS 3, PUMAS 0: Nicolás Lodeiro put the final touches on a dominant performance putting away a Jordan Morris shot that had come off the far post.

SOUNDERS 2, PUMAS 0: Raúl Ruidíaz grabbed his second goal, finishing off a wonderfully worked sequence with Nicolás Lodeiro delivering the final ball.

SOUNDERS 1, PUMAS 0: In a half where seemingly nothing went right for the Sounders, they were the ones to catch the first big break. After Albert Rusnák picked up a deflected free kick, he sliced into the box and sent in a cross that was deftly controlled by Xavier Arreaga who tapped it back to Raúl Ruidíaz. Ruidíaz’s shot hit off the arm of a Pumas defender and into the the goal for a first-half lead.

SOUNDERS LOSE TWO PLAYERS TO INJURY: The Sounders were forced to make two substitutes inside the first 30 minutes. First Nouhou went down with a quad injury around the 10th minute and was replaced by Kelyn Rowe. Then in the 28th minute, João Paulo was subbed off with a right knee injury and replaced by Obed Vargas.


By now you’re well-versed in what’s at stake and all the storylines around tonight’s absolutely massive Concacaf Champions League final. But here are the basics, in case you’ve forgotten:

  • The aggregate score is tied 2-2 after the Sounders went to Mexico City last week and earned a tie on two second-half penalties.
  • There is no away-goals tiebreaker, so the winner of tonight’s game takes home the trophy. Simple as that.
  • Should the game be tied at the end of regulation, there will be extra time, followed by kicks from the spot if necessary.
  • The Sounders have basically a full-strength squad, while Pumas are likely missing starting right back Alan Mozo.
  • Juan Ignacio Dinenno has been a beast for Pumas, scoring nine goals in seven CCL games. Watch out for that guy.
  • There’s going to be a sellout crowd of 68,000-plus in attendance, setting a CCL record.
  • This is the eighth time the Sounders have hosted a literal cup final, the first four of which were during the A-League/USL-era. The Sounders are 6-0-1 (and they won the tie in a penalty shootout) in those games.
